Did you realize while out clerking this summer that your legal research skills are lackluster or at least that you need to solidify certain skills? Do you want to bolster your resume and show employers you have the skills they’re looking for? The law school’s Excellence in Legal Research Program is here to help!
To participate in the program, students must complete 20 hours of instruction over the course of their law school career. Students are eligible to register beginning in the spring of their 1L year. Students take 6 required courses to cement the foundational skills they learn in our Legal Practice research workshops, and then can take any eight hours of additional classes. There are lots of offerings in Texas specific sources, as well as in specialized resources, such as legislative histories, practice and litigation materials, and current awareness. For more on the program, see the ELR Program website.
To register for the program, contact Prof. Drake at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, you’ll be able to register for individual sessions via Blackboard.
Here’s what we’re offering this fall!
